ABOUT THE SCREENWRITER: When she's not standing in front of Shetler's whiteboard with a marker in hand, you'll find her working full time for an Academy Award Winning actress in a position she's had for over a decade. She likes long walks on the beach and oxford commas. This script wasn't her idea: she was hired to write this pilot for a LA-based producer with intention to pitch this pilot to CBS. This is a first draft. Go easy.
